Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! After seeing brief glimpses of the snow covered gridirons of the football games in the north, once again, I am thankful for the weather in my home town, St. Petersburg! Sunshine and low eighties with cool nights are just perfect for me!
I had sort of an active weekend. Brian had invited me to a Life Group catered Christmas get together at his church, so we attended and there must have been over a hundred people there at lovely decorated tables and even decorated comfy chairs! Good company, where I met new people, and a couple old friends, good food, (even tho' mine was not warm by the time I was served) good music, and a fun game, which our table tied with another for the most correct answers. This was due in large part to Brian, who was the Bible Challenge winner many years ago as a teenager!
Then, yesterday, at church, three birthday cakes were served between services, for birthday people, including Cora, who was 102 years old!! She is pretty sharp for her age, and very tiny.
I also visited the park a couple times; saw the anhinga with wings spread wide, drying out, an ibis perched in a tree, hanging over the water, the moorhen family swimming all in a row, and people everywhere! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
What is God's power like?
May he grant your heart's desire and fulfill all your plans. May
we shout for joy when we hear of your victory, flying banners to
honor our God. May the Lord answer all your prayers. Now I
know that the Lord saves his anointed king. He will answer him
from his holy heaven and rescue him by his great power. Some
nations boast of their armies and weapons , but we boast in the
Lord our God.
God's power is greater than that of the greatest kings who ever ruled or
the mightiest armies that ever marched. This power is ours as we trust
him, obey him, and honor his name.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
